some days ago Herbert Schulz on this list in a "pdftex paper size"
entitled thread also reported a problem where he mentioned similar

> /usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-config/tex/generic/config/pdftexconfig.tex

that it seems to conatin

perhaps it depends on how installation worked initially ?

on my install tlmgr paper pdftexconfig.tex is at
